Afternoon show host Christian Fauria will broadcast live for 25 hours straight from 2:00 p.m. on November 13 to 3:00 p.m. on November 14 in an effort to raise $25,000 for diabetes awareness.
Fauria has a personal connection to the American Diabetes Association as his son was recently diagnosed. During the broadcast, he will discuss his family’s journey with diabetes and welcome special guests, including New England Patriots linebacker Dont’a Hightower, diabetes patients, medical professionals and Susan Sarro, Executive Director, the American Diabetes Association in New England.
“After my son’s life-altering diagnosis a few months ago, I became passionate about using my voice to raise awareness and funds to support those affected by diabetes,” said Fauria. “I look forward to sharing this inspirational broadcast with my listeners.”
“We are excited to support Christian Fauria and WEEI in their goal of spreading critical awareness of the prevalence of diabetes,” said Susan Sarro, Executive Director, American Diabetes Association in New England. “Diabetes is something that impacts all of us. Right now, there are 30.3 million children and adults living with diabetes–that’s one in 11 Americans–including 645,000 Massachusetts residents. The ‘25 for 25k’ event is an opportunity for Christian to use his platform to assist us in our mission to prevent and cure diabetes, and to improve the lives of all those affected by it. Together, we can help those living with diabetes feel supported so they can thrive.”
